Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3–6—Though they're reminiscent of Edward Packard's "Choose Your Own Adventure" series (Bantam), these books take the concept to a new level. Readers not only take an active role by choosing the outcome of a quest, but also learn some history. Each book begins with background information. Doeden's narrative takes place in feudal Japan, during the Age of the Warring States, 1467–1600. The fighters, who were skilled in the art of ninjutsu and experts in the use of weapons such as katanas and shuriken, could be hired as assassins, mercenaries, or bodyguards, roles that are included in the story choices. Hanel describes the steps to becoming a knight and life in medieval times; vivid portrayals of siege tactics and battles place readers in the time period. Although the focus is on knighthood, the details of peasants' travails create a well-rounded presentation. Colorful reproductions, computer-generated illustrations, and some photographs of weapons help to transport children to these times and places. Reluctant readers will be especially drawn to these books, though other children will find them engaging as well.—Lana Miles, Jackson Elementary School, Rosenberg, TX

My twin boys are fascinated at the moment with all things ninja. This book is an interesting introduction to the historical ninja. The concept places you in charge of the storyline, as you pick your mission and critical decisions. One of the primary lessons we learned, however, was how dangerous was the life of a ninja! Many of the outcomes were death. My husband found it too violent, but the kids were interested enough to follow several paths to the final outcome.

If you haven't read one of these you choose books - grab one today! If you have a child who doesn't like to read, this will have them not wanting to put the book down. If you have a reader who loves them - be ready to purchase more quickly! Hint:I found 25 of them at our local library! I think they make great gifts that can start a child on the adventure that these books offer, an adventure in reading and not electronics!

A Kid's Review on June 20, 2012
Format: Paperback
Life as a Ninja was a very fun book to read. I love that you can choose different paths resulting in various endings. I also like that there are 3 MAIN paths to link off of. The author was very smooth with the way he wrote. I especially like the main path 'The Band of Iga" because you could stay beside Ieyasu's side or go scout ahead.
